Dell Isilon Scale-Out Storage

Efficient and scalable Network Attached Storage

Dell EMC Isilon scale-out storage solutions are powerful, yet simple to scale and manage, no matter how large your unstructured data environment becomes. Unlike traditional storage, Isilon solutions are flexible, efficient and stay simple regardless of how much storage capacity and performance is required, or how your business needs change. Isilon integrates easily with a choice of cloud services and, with built-in data analytics support, allows you to unlock the value from your data to accelerate the digital transformation of your business.



Inline compression and data deduplication software enhances storage efficiency to reduce your physical storage requirements by up to 35%. A policy-based, automated tiering option allows you to optimise storage resources and further lower costs.



Powered by the OneFS operating system, Isilon all-flash storage supports all major protocols and data access methods. This means that you can support a wide range of unstructured data applications and workloads on a single storage platform.


Data Protection

All-flash platforms are highly resilient and offers N+1 through N+4 redundancy. With OneFS you may also choose from a variety of efficient and proven enterprise data backup and disaster recovery options.



All-flash platforms offer a broad range of robust security options including FIPS 140-2 level 2 self-encrypting drives, role-based access control (RBAC), secure access zones and file system auditing support.

Dell EMC Isilon scale-out storage solutions are designed for enterprises that want to manage their data, not their storage. The storage systems are powerful yet simple to install, manage, and scale to virtually any size. The storage includes a choice of all-flash, hybrid or archive nodes to meet the most demanding business needs.

Dell-EMC Isilon F-series All-Flash Arrays

The Isilon F-series all-flash arrays provide massive performance and capacity along with inline data compression and deduplication capabilities to deliver extreme efficiency. They deliver up to 250,000 IOPS and 15GB/sec aggregate throughput in a single chassis configuration and up to 15.75M IOPS and 945GB/s of aggregate throughput in a 252-node cluster. Each F-series chassis houses 60 SSDs with a capacity choice of 3.84TB, 7.68TB or 15.36TB per drive. This allows you to scale raw storage capacity from 230TB to 924TB in a 4U chassis and up to 58PB of raw storage in a single cluster.

Dell-EMC Isilon H-series Hybrid Arrays

The Isilon H-series hybrid arrays provide a balance of performance, capacity and value to support a wide range of file workloads. The H-series family delivers up to 12GB/s bandwidth per chassis and provides capacity options ranging from 120TB to 960TB per chassis, so is ideal for High Performance Computing (HPC) workloads that don’t require the extreme performance of all-flash.

Dell-EMC Isilon A-series Archive Arrays

Isilon A-series archive arrays offer two highly efficient and massively scalable archive storage solutions – one is an ideal active archive storage solution that combines near-primary accessibility, value and ease of use, while the other is an ideal solution for high density, deep archive storage that safeguards data efficiently for long-term retention. Both are powered by the OneFS operating system and can be combined with new or existing all-flash and hybrid storage systems into a single cluster that provides an efficient tiered storage solution that scales to over 60PB in a single cluster.
